OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Re-Love Project Part 4

We're up to the final stage - varnishing!
We used Feast Watson Mastertouch wipe-on poly in gloss and loved it! It was so easy to use - we just dipped a rag into it and wiped it on the rocking chair. It was a lot quicker than using a brush and easier to get into all those nooks and crannies. We did the whole chair, applying it to the stained areas, painted areas and bare wood. We did a few coats, waiting at least 6 hours and giving it a light sand in between coats.

Fabulous work ladies! Loving the pops of colour and the combined use of stain, paint and varnish - looks absolutely amazing!
